    All the above and sat in the old south seats and the new ones.
    Yes me too.

    Started in the West seats age 7. ST in the old south seats after we were promoted to Div 2 early 70s. Then in the East Terrace until Div 1 when moved to the North. Ocassional games on the NE corner, NW and SW standing. Never went in the Lego stand, but remember part of it crashing around me courtesy of Chelsea 83. Took my eldest lad in the new South seats for his first game, age 3 (1996).

    Have also watched the Albion on all 4 sides of Priestfield.

    Have sat in all parts of the Amex except the East Upper and the 1901.

      I couldn't make my mind up whether to include the lego stand or not. I decided not too because i hadn't sat there as i was to young.
      So you fixed the options so you could claim them all. Shame on you!


      I started in the NW corner on my dad's toolbox (still got it) in 1970. Slowly migrated to the South Stand and when that was made all seater, slowly moved up the East until finally joining the North sometime in the early 80s. The only bit of terracing I missed out was the NE away pen.

      Seats-wise, I only did the West stand for the Liverpool cup game in 84 (my boss couldn't go and gave me his season ticket) and tried out the lego stand and South stand at the same friendly match (I seem to recall against Luton) that was played mid-season but I can't remember why. We started that game in the North, went over to the lego (seem to remember singing "can you hear us with a roof") and went to the South for the second half by walking down the side of the pitch.

      That used to get a bit shaky when it was windy!

      The old South stand with the wooden seats and floor used to get really loud when everyone stamped their feet on the floor.

      Yes...only went once into the south stand when we were moved there from the north stand when West Ham fans were causing mayhem.

      Was in the west stand when we went to have a chat with our esteemed chief executive at the time...nice chap...can't remember his name but think it rhymes with biscotti. Unfortunately he hadn't taken up our offer.

      ... have stood/sat in every part of the goldstone and watched 90 minutes.

      North stand
      Chicken run
      North East
      East both parts
      South stand
      West terrace both stands
      West stand seats
      North West
      Mostly. Not sure I ever stood at the south end of the East or in the "away pen" of the NE corner.

      Started with a few games at the front of the South Stand then 90% of my Goldstone experience was in the middle of the North Stand. Dad's favoured spot was half way back in line with the righthand goalpost. After that, as an older youth, I moved on to turning left from the central aisle and joining the Knees Up section.

      Much later on had one match in the West Stand seats with my Dad.

      The other parts of The Goldstone got visited only out of necessity or due to circumstances. Memorably the north end of the East Terrace for Blackpool in 78 and the north end of the West Terrace for both Norwich in 83 and Doncaster in 97. The south end of the West Terrace I ended up in for some reason for a game against Fulham (c.96?) when they had a big following.

      I never sat in the West Stand - main or lego - wasn't that posh!

      I started life with my Dad on the benches at the back of the South Stand and then graduated to the terrace behind that goal. After it burnt down and was rebuilt as an all-seater I moved to either side of the tunnel on the terrace in front of the West Stand - generally the back of the north side of it. Occasionally I went in the North Stand or on the East Terrace. I've a vague recollection of standing in the north east corner on one occasion but I can't imagine why unless the away fans had been moved elsewhere for some reason.
      Arsenal cup game in 87 we were in the NE corner, Arsenal had the whole of the East stand so we were packed in there, 27,000 I think, certainly the biggest crowd I experienced at the Goldstone

      I remember years ago you could pay something like 50p and change stands at half time if you wanted
